Behavior-based interviewing is a method that revolves around the idea that an applicants past behavior will be an indicator to how he or she will react in similar situations. This method is now growing in popularity among interviewers. The type of questions that are asked are ones that will determine how you have handled yourself in past situations. You will need to remember details of past events that demonstrate your decision making skills as well as your thought process. BBI will put you under pressure to think on the spot and come up with detailed descriptions of scenarios. The best way to prepare for this type of interview is to get familiar with the type of questions that may be asked. Some examples of BBI questions are:
1. Provide an example of how you acquired a technical skill and converted it into a practical application.
2. Tell me about a suggestion you made to improve the way job processes/operations worked. What was the result?
3. Think of a situation where you distrusted a co-worker/supervisor, resulting in tension between you. What steps did you take to improve the relationship?
When you are going in for an interview, they will not tell you that it is behavior-based. This method will just be naturally incorporated into the process. These questions are a good start when trying to familiarize yourself with this interview process.
